Layla

This has been the worst week of my life - it has been 7 days since I made the decision to release Layla. Her back legs finally gave out and she couldn't get to the water for a swim. She gave me 10 years of devotion and love and really never put a paw wrong. I hope she is running around with her best friend Oscar at the bridge. I miss her so much. I cna't see the screen for crying now. God Bless you babe - you really were a dog in a million.

Sue, Kayleigh and Vixen
Layla RIP

Re: Layla

oh sue, i'm so sorry you had to make that decission. it is by far one of the hardest things we have to do in life. but, many times, it's the last act of kindness we can show them. you've had a wonderful life together, lovingly devoted to each other. my heart is broken for you.

Re: Layla

Sue, No matter if we know we did what was best for our best friend, it still hurts like crazy. But the good part of it hurting like crazy is that you were a loving dog owner. If you weren't a loving owner it wouldn't hurt.

RIP Layla

Re: Layla

Dear Sue,

I know what you are going through. Please know that we are sending heartfelt condolences across the ocean.

It is even more agonizing to put down a dog whose body gives out before their mind does. My heart goes out to you.

Yours in GSDs and rescue,

Lea

Re: Layla

SO sorry to hear of your loss. She's free of any pain now and romping with the others. Rest peacefully Layla.
